24-year-old Emma Lamb turned emotional after scoring a crucial maiden century for England’s stunning victory over South Africa. Admitting that it was a “very special and very emotional” moment of her career.

Emma Lamb, who was playing in her fifth international for England across all formats, scored a crucial 102 as England chased down South Africa’s 219 target and began their journey to achieve such a historic moment. She couldn’t hide the feeling when she scored the mighty triple figure in her second ODI career match.

“What a day. I am just absolutely buzzing to get a 100 in my second ODI, I think,” she said.

“I just wanted to be really positive and I kept it really simple to be honest.

“I thought our bowlers did a lot of hard work in the first innings, so if it was in my slot I just wanted to hit it with all intent.

“I have full faith in my coaches in my team and I think that helps a lot. I feel really calm and relaxed about where I am and it’s a great start for me and hopefully I can make it through.” I can continue in the tournament.

Despite such a feat, Lancashire’s batsman was realistic about the learning curve that is still ahead of her.

“It was very special and very emotional, I nearly cried.”

Lamb continued: “I kept it really simple to be honest and I felt pretty comfortable batting after scoring 20 runs.

“I think it was obvious just to play my game and obviously what I’ve done before has worked and the way I play is what brought me to this point, so I don’t want to change anything.

“I think not every game will go according to plan and that’s why I think the game has its ups and downs and I’m learning from them and I’m only 24 so hopefully I’ve got a little time ahead of me Is.

“Obviously I’ve been batting with some of the best batsmen in the world and I learn a lot from them.
